The 2014 World Cup Cabo Style

Posted by: Terramar Destinations on: June 26, 2014

So, we are pretty much half way through the 2014 Brazil World Cup and the excitement is rising by the day. The first stage is over and it’s now on to the round of 16 where we will not be seeing soccer powerhouses Spain, England or Italy, which has come as a huge to shock to most fans and soccer professionals alike. However, we are glad to say that Mexico, along with the United States and most other countries from the Americas have made it through having many predicting the world’s most famous sport cup will be staying in America until 2018 when it’s Russia’s turn to host the event. 


As you might imagine, for Mexican’s, this is pretty much the most important sporting event in the world. Soccer or football as most of the world calls it is basically played religiously in Mexico, central and South America making the fan base for each countries team a whole country population affair. Thus, if you are visiting us in Cabo or Panama you will most likely not be able to escape the football fever and we would advise you to join in the festivities, as even if for instance Mexico were not to advance to the quarterfinals, the World Cup fever would still be present. Soccer is a part of life, part of our culture, even a healthy escape for the youth of some of these poverty stricken countries.

For this specific reason, we’ve decided to dedicate this entire blog to our personal recommendations on where to enjoy the games and have the most fun while watching them in sunny Cabo. Baja Cantina Beach Club right smacked in the middle of Medano Beach overlooking the Cabo San Lucas Bay and Los Cabos’ most famous landmark; the Arch. A perfect setting where you can eat and drink and have some fun in the water as well. Medano Beach is Cabo’s most energetic beach, boasting all sorts of water and beach activities, plus it’s a lovely swimming beach adept for both children and adults. Enjoy the game right on the sand and then get working on your tan and your beach activities.


Next on our list is a rustic beach side palapa restaurant in San Jose called Zipper’s. This little restaurant-bar is right on Cabo’s most prominent surf break overlooking the Bay of San Jose. It is also a hot spot for sporting aficionados as Zipper’s always has on the best NFL, soccer, baseball, you name it games on. Thus, many locals as well as tourists make their way to Zipper’s for a burger, beer and game. And if some in your party are not an avid a sports fan as you, a nice stroll down the beach watching the surfers is always a good idea.


Now let’s say you want to watch a game and have some of the most amazing seafood. We would highly consider going to Mocambo restaurant in downtown Cabo San Lucas. This restaurant offers Veracruz style seafood as well as local delicacies you will not regret trying. And what could be better than feasting on some of the most delicious Baja seafood while catching up on the world’s most famous sporting event? Kill two birds with one stone, as Mocambo should be a must on everyone’s list. 


Lastly, for a fancier, more luxurious World Cup experience we recommend Hacienda Cocina and Cantina in Cabo San Lucas. It is the popular restaurant of the Hacienda Beach Club & Residences on Medano Beach showcasing traditional Mexican dishes from all over Mexico. Plus they have got one of the best tequila and mescal collections in Cabo. Choose to wine and dine in the indoor restaurant, in the terraza al fresco or for a more laid-back ambience they also offer the very popular tables on the sand. There are many more places we recommend but the idea is not get bogged down with options and have the best ones on hand. Enjoy!
